How do,

Im currently trying to install Windows 98 onto an old pentium 100 (16mb ram). Seems to go ok does checks and then when it comes up with 'loading setup wizard' the computer gives a squeak and a black rectangle appears in the centre of the screen and it hangs. Tried installing off cd and hard drive and it does the same thing! Does this computer not meet the minimum specs?

I could install win 95 on it but Im setting it up to network with a win 98 machine and would rather have win98 on both.

Any ideas??????
